The 2013 Oscar Nominations (A Pajiba Prediction)

By Dustin Rowles | Seriously Random Lists | October 9, 2012 | Comments ()


(LOS ANGELES) January 10, 2013 -- Nominations were announced for the 86th Annual Academy Awards this morning, presented by Octavia Spencer and Jon Hamm. Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master leads all films in nominations, landing a nom in each major category for which it was eligible. Meanwhile, Ben Affleck's Argo is perhaps the surprise of the Oscars, meriting the second most nominations including the former's actors first nomination as a director. Quvenzhané Wallis became the youngest Academy Award nominee ever for her role in Beasts of the Southern Wild, while Meryl Streep picked up her record-holding 18th Oscar Nomination. On the other side of the equation, after two decades in the business, Matthew McConaughey landed his first Oscar nom.

Among the snubs, Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was left out in the cold in the major categories, though it did land several in the technical categories, the Wachowski's Cloud Atlas was also shut out in the major categories along with The Dark Knight Rises. Ang Lee's Life of Pi was completely ignored by the Academy, which has already sparked controversy because of the Academy's failure to acknowledge a film dominated by actors of color.

Here's a complete list of nominations in all the major categories.
